Washington: A new headset that beams movies, video games or even video calls directly into your eyeballs - even in 3D - has been developed.

The headset due to launch this year uses two million microscopic mirrors to emulate the way the eye processes real-world images.

The Glyph headset, developed by Michigan-based Avegant, creates visuals that just need your retinas and brain instead of a screen, CNN reported.
The technology centres around a set of two million microscopic mirrors - a million per eye - that reflect visuals, including 3-D, into the user`s eye.

Users can play the video content on their mobile or entertainment device and watch it on the Glyph instead of their device`s screen.

Edward Tang, Avegant`s CEO said that Glyph has a battery life of about three hours.
The device looks like a pair of headphones sitting on the user`s head when not in use, the report said.

It also doubles as a pair of high-end headphones with noise cancelling, Avegant said.
Users flips down the band over their head, making it an eyepiece to add visuals.
